4 Ways to Give Your Wedding an Intimate Atmosphere

4 Ways to Give Your Wedding an Intimate Atmosphere

Lots of people want to create that intimate atmosphere during their wedding day, but this can seem difficult to achieve -- especially with a higher guest count. Even if your guest count is in the hundreds, there are many simple ways that you can make your big day feel intimate and close-knit. Here are a few of our favorite methods.

Pick a Cozy Venue

When most people hear “big wedding,” they immediately think of a ballroom wedding -- which isn’t always the most intimate setting in the world. But just because you have a high guest count doesn’t mean you’re doomed to have an impersonal wedding venue. Even if you need a large seating capacity for the party, break up your event into different, smaller rooms to amp up the intimacy.

Dim the Lights

Playing with the lighting at your event space will help create a more intimate setting no matter what kind of venue you chose. Dim lighting warmed up with the flicker of candles will create a sense of timeless romance in any space. Pair this with soft fabrics and textures to tie together the whole look.

Skip the Mirrors

While mirrors are beautiful additions to any space, they tend to make the room look bigger rather than smaller. If you are looking to deemphasize the size of your venue and create a cozy atmosphere, then you should skip the mirrors in your decorating plans

Personalize Your Decor

Decor helps create the atmosphere of your big day. Using decorations that reflect who you are and your tastes as a couple will add a personal touch to your nuptials. This can be done in a variety of ways, including setting out family photos everywhere, incorporating your favorite shows or books into different aspects of the decor, or creating a signature cocktail. These little details can help ensure that your event is unique to you.
